Episode: 17 Management of the pediatric orthopedic athlete with Dr. VandenBerg

In this episode, Craig and Dr. Curtis VandenBerg discuss pediatric orthopedics and how management can be different than working with adults. This talk includes different injuries that typically don’t happen in the adult world including osteochondritis dissecans (OCD), ACL surgery considerations for the adolescent, rehab considerations, and motion testing with return to sport testing.

Dr. VandenBerg is an orthopaedic surgeon with advanced specialty training in pediatric orthopaedic surgery and orthopaedic sports medicine. He attended Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine and graduated with honors in bioethics while serving as class president for four years. Dr. VandenBerg completed his internship and residency at Columbia University’s St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York City. During this time, he also gained further experience in pediatric orthopaedic surgery at A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware. After his five-year orthopaedic surgery residency, Dr. VandenBerg completed two years of advanced fellowship training: first at Children’s Hospital Colorado in pediatric orthopaedic surgery and then at the University of Michigan in orthopaedic sports medicine. During his sports medicine fellowship, he served as a team physician for Division 1 college sports teams, including the University of Michigan football, wrestling, men’s hockey, and women’s gymnastics teams and Eastern Michigan University athletic teams.
